, not a phenomenon. the era of egypt and the region has changed, and america has now beginning to learn a new and listen to a new language. >> so is he right? is there a new era dawning in the middle east? and what does it mean for the u.s.? >> well, there's clearly a new era dawning in the middle east. and we're still trying to figure out what the new order is going to look like, as are many people on the ground. but both sides to a certain degree can claim a degree of victory here. hamas survived and it can never win militarily. but it can -- it -- its survival means that it won to a certain extent. that's the model created in the war between israel and hezbollah in neighboring lebanon. but israel also made significant gains out of this. it proved that its iron dome missile defense system could protect vast areas and could shoot down the majority of hamas rockets. and one of the things it's going to get out of this from the united states is additional help in providing more missiles for iron dome so that it has even a greater range of protection. so the dynamics are changing a little bit on

across the united states of america. you cannot solely cut your way out of the amount of debt that we have. so this issue must be addressed. but the most important issue is that the middle class tax cuts should be voted on right now, by the congress, passed the senate, needs to come through the house. there's no reason for 98% of americans taxes to go up next year, as we continue to deal with this fiscal crisis. >> mayor smith, you okay with that? vote on middle class tax cuts right now? >> well, i think any action would be good action. i think one of the things we found in the cities is that the one thing that is most paralyzing to us is inaction. because inaction breeds uncertainty and uncertainty means people hang onto their dollars. companies don't invest. consumers don't spend. i think that the sooner the action from congress, and obviously extending tax cuts may be the easiest thing to do, the better off we all are, because that will give us some certainty, especially going into the holiday season. >> speaking of any action being good action one of our colleagues, she covers the

obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid, and unwavering. that is why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation in gaza. >> so in your estimation what is specifically de-escalation? >> well, de-escalation is creating time and space, again, to get the civilian populations on both sides to feel, again, some sort of confidence that there could be a secure environment, in the short term, while these political talks go on. >> no rockets, they have to stop firing rockets, no bombs on buses? >> absolutely. and of course, originally, before this bomb on the bus, which, again, has been, you know, tactic that's been used in the past but hasn't really been seen for awhile we were really talking about these rocket attacks and the escalation of a more sophisticated rockets, which israel views as a real threat to the civilian population. >> so then, how do you get to the rocket stopping and the bombs stopping when you, you hear from, for example, a hamas spokesperson who was talking to wolf blitzer, here's what
